Life and Death, and Other Stories and Legends


Published June 17, 2014


LibriVox recording of Life and Death, and Other Stories and Legends by Henryk Sienkiewicz. (Translated by Jeremiah Curtin.)
Read in English by MaryAnne; Jeanie; Winston Tharp

Henryk Sienkiewicz won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1905, but as he wrote in Polish many English-speakers are unfamiliar with his work. This short story collection is a sampler of five myths and legends which he collected. The "Life and Death" of the title is a Hindu legend, the rest of Polish stories. All are short and together form a little taste of this great author who is too often unknown to English readers. - Summary by Beth Thomas
